Third Annual Feminist Scholar in Residence

Presented by the Gender Equity in Word and Deed Committee of Grace Church, Brooklyn Heights; the Mercer School of Theology; All Saints Park Slope; and St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church.
At this contentious moment in our country and at our borders, we will gather to explore the ways in which Latin American women struggle for survival and justice at the intersections of social and religious systems in this country, and and what this can mean for our theology and ministries.
